The authors studied 47,355 women who completed questionnaires
on high school diet and physician-diagnosed severe teenage acne.
The authors then accounted for age, age at first menstrual period,
body mass index, energy intake and prevalence ratio (or relative
risk) of acne. They found that teenagers who ate more of the following
dietary products are at higher risk of developing acne:
• Total milk
• Skim milk
• Instant breakfast drink
• Cottage cheese
• Cream cheese
The authors suspect that the presence of hormones and other bioactive
molecules in milk may be responsible for this link between dietary
food and acne.
